Subject:ODC 2008
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:12:55 pm.
Is being planned in the yahoo group. If you aren't already a member & would like to come to ODC 2008, join the group for more details.

OzDariaCon is a fun experience for all involved & I would like it to continue to be, which is why I make the request that you give me the chance to get to know you before your first ODC.

Subject:Deviantart-related & Lew/Heroes-related
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:11:59 am.
Well, this one's hairy. See, the link I'm about to post will probably start a flame war. In fact, it already has. There is an idiot printing out Heroes as a bound book, without Lew's permission. And another idiot telling me that Lew doesn't exist.

Now, here's the problem - you may need to scroll down to get to the meat of it. Do what you will with it.

Crosspost at will.

Subject:Daria Idol
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:12:08 pm.
The idea is that anyone eligable auditions for (insert country's name here) Idol (2006/7) wearing a t-shirt demanding Daria on DVD and singing a song about how they want Daria on DVD.

What we need:

* Someone to write the lyrics. (we don't need music. The way to get noticed at the Auditions & get on tv is to sound like crap or like an angel) If you want to write music too, go for it. Just remember most of us can't read it anyway. ;)

* Someone to design the shirt (something we can put on cafe press & whore out for preference)

* Anyone who is dedicated enough to the cause, the right age & physically able to get to their country's Auditions to do it.

So if you have any ideas for lyrics or shirt slogans or designs, post them here & we'll decide democratically (by pop poll) which one we'll go with. ;)

Please feel free to grab this post & crosspost it where you will

Okay, so I've been googling like crazy, to almost no avail. Does anybody have a link, or a list, of GOOD Daria/Trent fics? All I've come up with is FFnet entries, and we all know how evil THAT is. Help? :\

ODC cancelled.

Not to worry. That needn't stop anyone from contacting anyone else and hanging out & watching Daria.

I just wanted my birthday back. ;) (among other things)

Hi, I'm Kat, 18, been watching Daria since I was a kid, absolutely love it despite not having seen the movies or some of the later eps.
I taped some of the eps when I got Foxtel, but of course as soon as I got Foxtel, MTV stopped screening them. I do have the two books though. :D
I've never been to any type of con before and I'd really like to come to the next one... when is it going to be?

Subject:For the budget conscious
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:7:34 pm.
If you're thinking of attending odc and are on a hideously tight budget, I highly recommend these guys. They are outrageously cheap for Echuca-Moama - you simply will not find cheaper accomodation in Echuca-Moama.

G'day everyone
a big werd up to you all from Edward, aka Loscha.

I'm from Bendigo, and I'm new to the Clan, but, I'm sure most of you have heard the word on the streets that a new guy is in town.
Feel free friend add me, and I'd love to add some of you guys, if you don't mind offering up your names.

glad to be in the club.
I guess Groucho Marx was wrong when he said you should never want to join a club that would actually have you as a member.

Subject:My Personal Preferences
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:6:24 pm.
I'm not a big fan of bigotry. It disgusts me, to be honest. This group was started to give Australian Daria fans a means to meet up with other Australian Daria fans. We've recently expanded this to include local regions (New Zealand, Torres Strait Islands, etc) for a good reason - we're all in this area together, we do travel between our different countries quite frequently, and we're a small but friendly fan base.

We have a lovely Polish Daria fan as a member of this group. Why? Well, because she's trying to move here with her lovely Australian boyfriend, and really wants to meet Australian Daria fans. And as far as I'm concerned, that's an excellent reason for being here.

My concern is that there may be racist, bigoted people in here who have come here because they don't like one (or more) racial groups or nationalities. You guys will be found out and booted out on your arses. That mentality simply isn't welcome here.

I want people to feel that this is a safe, happy environment. I want people to feel like they can hook up with other people in this community and not feel threatened because of their differences. For that reason, I am making this loud and clear - I will not tolerate bigotry of any form in here. Ever.

Subject:The Price of Fandom
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:3:06 pm.
Cost for ODC will be approximately $100 per person if you attend all of the outings and stuff.

$30 for the BBQ
$40 will get you a decent meal at either Nik's Taverna or the Shamrock Hotel (whichever we end up choosing)
$25 for the Port of Echuca Outing.

Come to whatever ones you want to come to - the only restrictions are:

1) I will need to know about a month ahead of time if you're coming to the dinner so that I can book an appropriate-sized table for our group.

2) Costumes are required for the BBQ - it's a tradition and part of the fun. But it's up to you if you interpret 'after dark' as formal wear or fetishwear or something in between. Be aware that this event may not be child friendly as there will be alcohol and some costumes will probably not be safe for kids.

Some extra spending money is advisable for the Port of Echuca Outing as we will be brunching/lunching at the Beechworth Bakery again, and there are lots of things to blow money on in the Port of Echuca.

I'd also like RSVP by the end of December if you're intending on coming to ODC next year, as I'm hosting this in my home.

Don't forget your camera. :)

Subject:Just a quick reminder to you all
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:12:10 pm.
This is a meet-up community, not a regional/exclusionist community. Therefore, there's been a bit of a change to the info blurb to reflect this. I've posted it below to let you all know. I expect those of you who are interested in meeting up with other Daria fans to post a reply to this thread.


The Info Page Blurb:

Oz Daria Con is a group dedicated to brining Australian Daria fans together. It is specifically for organising and planning meet-ups, particularly the big cultural event known as Oz Daria Con. If you're an Australian Daria fan who is looking for other Daria fans in your local area to hang out with, you've come to the right place.

Oz Daria Con has restricted membership because it is specifically oriented towards meetings between Australian Daria fans. If you are a Daria fan relocating to, or planning a holiday in Australia please send details here. We'd hate to see you miss out on meeting Daria fans during your stay.


floopyboo and caira - your friendly Mods.

Subject:New Zealand....

Time:11:49 am.
Should we extend the invitation to Daria Fans across the Tasman?

Do you guys want New Zealanders in here with us, or do you want ODC to be an Australians-Only community?

Those of you who haven't contacted me by this Friday who are intending on attending ODC should bookmark this site.

This is the last time I will warn you that Echuca-Moama is packed during the Easter holidays (ie: During ODC) so you will need to book well in advance to get the accomodation you want. Do not plan on staying with Lew and I if you haven't already made arrangements to do so with me by Friday.

Also, do not assume that your request to stay with us will be granted. We don't have a lot of space here.

I know it's a touch ranty, but I'm not making this shit up, okay. Echuca is a tourist town and you will be visiting during silly season.

Subject:Confirmation of intention to attend
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:7:31 pm.
ODC is still ages away. But... I need some numbers fairly soon.

Most importantly I need those of you intending to crash at my place
to let me know by this Friday. (Caira, Dinareisness, Deref - I know
about you guys, no need to tell me again)

Those of you who want to stay in a hotel or caravan park need to get
cracking with your bookings. If you wait until a week before, you
will be sleeping in the park. If you leave it until a month before,
you may not get your choice of accomodation.

I won't need the recipes/allergy lists until February, but if you
want to start thinking about them now, I won't object.

We figure out dinner plans a little further on because right now we need to figure out numbers.

Subject:Musos and wannabes
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:7:57 pm.
Do you sing,dance or play an instrument? Are you the king or queen of the karaoke bar?

deref's going to bring along his guitar this ODC. I'm going to get well-lubricated and show you all exactly how much my voice has deteriorated over the years.

If you want to get involved, get in contact with me, as I'm getting together some music and some lyrics. (so we can at least pretend to know the words to some of the same songs)

If you feel like it on the night, fuck yes, join in!

Subject:The Traditional ODC Themed Outing
Posted by:floopyboo.
Time:3:40 pm.
Mood: amused.
Why don't we try having a Lawndale theme for the Outing this year?

What do you guys think? should we be people from Lawndale, or should we come up with another weird and creative theme?(if so, suggest something!)
